About The Pandora Project by Heather A. Cowan:
He was genetically engineered and mutated to be perfect. She is a mistake that now holds the key to his power. Thrown together by the very evil that created them, will he be the friend she so desperately needs or the trigger that unleashes her power on an unsuspecting world?
For as long as she can remember, seventeen year old Paige Mills has always thought of herself as a monster. A monster with the power to unleash unspeakable evil (or good) on the world. Unable to touch others, Paige lives with the knowledge that she can unlock the very best or worst in all of us. But living a quiet life in the middle of nowhere Nebraska helps her believe she has everything under control…until John Sullivan arrives in town. John represents everything her family has hidden her from since birth: change, doubt, temptation and power.
With his good looks and easy manner, John is everything Paige fears and desires. He quickly breaks down the walls she spent her entire life building. As her world collapses around her, Paige and John are forced to run from those who would use her to do their bidding.
In a rush to save herself and those she loves, she learns that power alone does not define you, but how you use it. Does she have the strength to not become the monster she has always feared? Does she have the power to unlock the very best of herself?
By trying to avoid her fate will she unknowingly run headlong into its waiting arms?
